3.Autonomy of judgment: the aspects on which the course focuses (the definition of fundamental rights in its link with the constitutional interpretation / the role of the judiciary, the legislator and the public administrations in the application and implementation of a constitutional right) favor the development of the capability of autonomous understanding and reasoning with respect to constitutional law issues, seen in their connection with the social, cultural and economic context in change, and with the action of public powers.

Prerequisites

Contents

The course studies the wide range of links that connect the constitutional discipline of a fundamental right with its implementation through the public policies. What transformations take place in this passage? How does the mediation of the legislature, of the judiciary and of the ,administrative action (but also the characteristics of society) influence the actual - 'living' - configuration of a given fundamental right?
We will address these questions with reference to the constitutional right to housing.
The course is based on the book "Il diritto costituzionale all'abitare", by E. Olivito, Jovene, Naples, 2017.
The lessons are intended to facilitate the students' understanding of the issues addressed by the book; their aim is to familiarize the students with the language and the conceptual perspectives of Constitutional Law.
The course, which include an in depth analysis of the concept of 'social right' as fundamental right, follows the development of E.Olivito's book:
I. The right to housing in the doctrine and in the jurisprudence (which will be the object of the first module);
II. Housing policies in Italy (second module)
III. The right to housing as a 'right in motion'. Socio-economic transformations and changes in the housing question (second module).
Some aspects of current Sardinia's housing politics will be also dealt with.
The possibility of differences (either in the program or in the examination modalities) between attending and non-attending students will be agreed with the students at the beginning of the course. See the personal teacher's webpage for updating.
